Check of a condition and replacement of brake lines and hoses


1. Approximately time in half a year, having lifted the car, check all flexible hoses connecting steel tubes of hydraulic contours to brake mechanisms of wheels, on existence of cracks, signs of damage of a protective cover, traces of leakages of liquid, swellings and other damages. Hoses are a critical and most vulnerable component of brake system therefore their survey should be made with all care – use a pocket small lamp and a small mirror. At identification of any doubtful signs the suspected hose is subject to replacement.
2. At replacement of brake lines it is necessary to give particular attention to selection of replaceable components. At all it is not necessary to establish to the hydraulic highway of brake system the copper tubes, not capable to sustain efforts developed in contours.

Flexible hoses also should be the first-rate quality.

9. Watch reliability of fastening of brake lines in all provided intermediate clamps and basic arms.
10. Having finished installation of new sections of hydraulic lines, check liquid level in the GTTs tank. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment. Pump over brake system (see.
